We had an ice storm and now there are downed power lines in my yard. So I can’t let the dogs outdoors.
So I have two very unhappy canine campers. Due to the ice storm Tulsa received, there are lots of broken trees and downed power lines all over town.
An electrical line going from my garage up to the roof of my house was pulled down by the half-dead tree next door.
The landlord there hasn’t touched those trees since I’ve lived here. It’s that tree that the one the woodpecker is always pecking.
Power Line Across My Driveway:
Anyway, the electrical line is down across my driveway, hanging over my chain link fence, and laying in my yard.
So I’m obviously not backing my car out of my driveway.
The dogs haven’t been able to go out all day. And the electric company says I’m probably looking at late tomorrow night before they can get to me.
I went out and tried to move things around it to keep the dogs away. But the person I talked to said not to let the dogs out there anyway.
Abi & Charlie Are Unhappy About Not Going Out:
So the dogs are very, very unhappy and letting me know about it.
I broke down and let them out in the front yard for a little bit. Watching them like a hawk.
Abi of course, being the free spirit that she is, took off at high speed like the devil was chasing her.
I stood in the street warding off cars. Who’s out in weather conditions like this driving anyway?
I got Charlie pretty easily. He cows down.
Abi Was In Her Element:
But Abi delightedly ran back and forth in front of the house showing me that she could.
I finally got the little stinker because she’s jealous of my holding Charlie and just cannot take that very long.
Meanwhile, I’ve been offline since morning. I had to have the cable internet techs I pay monthly to remotely remove some malware from my computer.
In doing so, the malware took all my bookmarks.
Sigh. Now I’ll have to find them all and put them back again as I remember them.
